Chandragupta MauryaEdit

Only Jainist sources say that he convert to Jainism but Wikipedia does not rely so much on religious sources than it does on scholarly sources. Read WP:IRS and read your sources carefully before reverting again. Aman Kumar Goel (Talk) 14:35, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

Before you say that he was Jain let me say that the sources used for Hindu are unauthentic bcoz the writers are Hindu this is just a lame reason. Rishabh.rsd (talk) 16:34, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

That doesn't say that he was unneutral Rishabh.rsd (talk) 16:35, 19 January 2021 (UTC)

Then why are you misrepresenting Mookerji, who does not even mention that Maurya was a Jain on p.66 and why are you using another religious source which is a poor source per this edit? Why are you using a source that does not provide any reference for their claims and contradicts WP:CONTEXTMATTERS? You have been already told earlier to read WP:IRS. Traditional Jain sources are not reliable than scholarly sources on the subject. Dhawangupta (talk) 12:30, 20 January 2021 (UTC)
To be more specific, you will have to use only those scholarly sources that would address how Jain sources are correct. Given the dispute within Jain sources, you would need really descriptive source that would clear all the doubts and dispute you are going through. It is also said that Jain sources talk about a different Chandragupta, not Maurya one, there have been multiple "Chandragupta". Dhawangupta (talk) 13:04, 20 January 2021 (UTC)

I have added reliable sources now you can check Rishabh.rsd (talk) 07:32, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

Your above explanation is misleading just like your recent restoration of your disputed content by labeling explained revert as "vandalism". See WP:NOTVAND and refrain from any further disruptive editing. Having observed the history of your talk page, I am seeing that your clear refusal to understand the importance of scholarly sources is long term. Take this note seriously or else I will have to report your misconduct. Aman Kumar Goel (Talk) 14:47, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

I have added now reliable sources and Dhawan Gupta, Mookerjee says he was jain on pages 40-41 check properly Rishabh.rsd (talk) 17:22, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

And Jain digambara tradition talks about different Chandragupta not shvetambara Rishabh.rsd (talk) 17:29, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

Also the sources for Hinduism just say that "Chandragupta Maurya a Hindu king.." there are no other proofs like the one for Jainism Rishabh.rsd (talk) 17:33, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

Mookerji says only Jain tradition say he was a Jain. Whereas scholarly sources say he was a Hindu. Now you must stop reverting and be careful of WP:EW and WP:3RR. You are not allowed to keep restoring your edit without WP:CONSENSUS. Dhawangupta (talk) 07:52, 22 January 2021 (UTC)

I have added other scholarly sources which say he was a jain Rishabh.rsd (talk) 10:47, 23 January 2021 (UTC)

The one of prominent Historians of india RC Majumdar says

If Jaina tradition is to be believed, Chandragupta was con

verted to the religion of Mahiviru. He is said to have abdicated bis throne and passed his last days at Sravaņa Belgola in Mysore. Greek evidence, however, suggests that the first Maurya did not give up the performance of saerificial rites and was far from following the Jaina creed of Aimsi or non-injury to animals. He took delight in hunting, a practice that was continued by his son and was also alluded to by his grandson Aśoka in the eighth Rock Edict. It is, however, possible that in his last days he showed some pre- dilection for Jainism just as Harsha in the seventh century a.D., though officially a shivaite, paid respect to the Buddha and the

Buddhist Master of the Law.

Jainism in Kashmir moved to draftspaceEdit

An article you recently created, Jainism in Kashmir, is not suitable as written to remain published. It needs more citations from reliable, independent sources. (?) Information that can't be referenced should be removed (verifiability is of central importance on Wikipedia). I've moved your draft to draftspace (with a prefix of "Draft:" before the article title) where you can incubate the article with minimal disruption. When you feel the article meets Wikipedia's general notability guideline and thus is ready for mainspace, please click on the "Submit your draft for review!" button at the top of the page. noq (talk) 10:37, 4 August 2021 (UTC)
